Under 15 teams pick up a pair of victories over ASB
On Nut – The Under 15 Girls Team remain unstoppable as they pick up their third win in as many tries, soundly defeating the Lady Eagles of American School Bangkok – Sukhumvit Campus (ASB) 49-7. This time, however, ASB seemed to enter the game on a much more level playing field with the Lady Seahawks, compared to previous opponents Charter International School and Bangkok Christian International School. Nonetheless, as the Wells signature defense continues to baffle opponents, its offense continues to improve in leaps and bounds.
While keeping ASB scoreless for nearly the entire first half, Wells amassed 28 points – mostly from fast-break opportunities due to a very successful swarming defense that allowed just 7 points for the entire game. Additionally, shooting was well distributed with three players scoring in double figures (Ruchika – 15 points, Kanny Smith – 14 points, and Marin Takahashi – 12 points).
The second game of the doubleheader was arguably the most exciting game of the season so far. Despite an obvious height disadvantage, the Wells Under 15 Boys team took part in a clinic of precision passing, quick defensive hands, and well-distributed shot selection.
Leading by only two, 8-6, at the end of the first quarter, the Seahawks really began to click in the second quarter. Behind a series of steals leading to easy layups by Kevin (gr. 8), and a pair of three-pointers by forward Harjas Anandsongvit (gr. 9), the Seahawks built a 25-15 lead by halftime. This lead proved to be enough as the Hawks matched the visiting team point-for-point as it tried, to no avail, to claw back into the game. However, when the dust settled, the boys from Wells came out on top, 45-36.
Scoring in double figures for the boys were Jim (gr. 9) with 16 points, Kevin with 11 points, and Harjas with 10 points.
The TISAC schedule continues in two weeks as the U15 teams take on Bangkok Prep on October 14. GO SEAHAWKS!
